5 Budget Friendly Ways To Brighten Your Kitchen

Transform your kitchen by adding colourful touches to brighten your kitchen space! Whether your kitchen is in need of natural light, a pop of colour or simply a makeover, these budget friendly ways may get you inspired!

Fresh Coat Of Paint

Let’s first start with the canvas, the walls of the kitchen. If your space is struggling in the natural light department, this is a great way to brighten it up. We recommend choosing a light neutral paint colour! One of our favourite go-to paint colours to achieve this beautiful bright kitchen look, is “Dover White” by Sherwin Williams. A warm white with a yellow undertone, which works really well with other colours. It’s a beautiful colour that provides flexibility when wanting to switch things up decor wise.

Beautiful Greenery

Adding greenery to a space can be a fun and creative way to decorate your kitchen. Whether you choose real or faux plants/flowers, that is up to you. Decorating your kitchen with natural elements is a great way to style and brighten up a space. We personally enjoy making the most of every season by selecting greenery that is in season. We also enjoy low maintenance houseplants, such as the yucca plant, zz plant and snake plant!

Display Fresh Fruits

Another wonderful way of decorating your kitchen is by having your favourite seasonal fruits on display. At this very moment, we are enjoying having apples, lemons and artichokes on display. These lovely and happy colours compliment each other and bring such joy to the kitchen.

Colourful Kitchen Towels

Generally speaking, most kitchens tend to have a neutral colour palette. A great way of adding some texture or patterns to your kitchen, is by updating your kitchen towels. This is such a fun way to make the most of each season!

Cabinet Makeover

Kitchen cabinets generally take up a good amount of space. Brighten up your kitchen by giving your cabinets a fresh coat of paint! This is not only a budget friendly way to transform your kitchen, it’s also a great way to change up your cabinet colour from time to time! In order to brighten the kitchen, we prefer choosing soothing colours for our kitchen space. If you could pick any cabinet colour, which one would you choose?
